Now the big problem is to convince the citizens of this country to vote in
very large numbers! Americans have got to comprehend that an unexercised
franchise is one that is soon lost! Sure they could vote after 1933 in
Germany, and they could vote in The Soviet Union but it sure wasn't a
franchise. Most European elections have at least 94% of the voters
exercising their franchise, has America ever had a turn-out that good. In
1996 most eligible voters didn't vote and the result was a minority (21
%)swept Gingrich and his white trash buddies into power.
This by the way is far more important than theosophy!
